Hey @Preetish 

Do you want to do this as part of the standard approval Flow? If so, I don't believe this is supported currently... you can vote for the feature here:



Hey @Preetish 

Sorry, meant to add this to the original reply... I've assumed you're thinking SharePoint tasks, let me know if you were trying to create some other type of task (Outlook, Planner, etc.)

Adding a simple task list item to an external user in SharePoint is possible usiung the SharePoint 'Create Item' action ... see below:tast-1.png
